Hello Crafters! I'm so excited to be able to share a little sneak peek the new Stamping Bella Holiday Release! This stamp along with a bunch of other adorable ones will be available for purchase on Saturday, September 3rd at the Stamping Bella shop. I had the pleasure of using the new "Gingerbread Chicks" stamp. I just love the chick stamp line and these are no exception!
Aren't they just the cutest? They are ready to bake some yummy cookies or gingerbread men. I decided to go with non-traditional Christmas colors for this card. I was inspired by a holiday paper pack from Crate Paper called Snow Day. I colored the little chicks with my Copic markers on some Copic friendly paper. I then fussy cut each image leaving a small white border. Here's a close up of the Copic colors I used.:
I used a die to create the three little windows in the patterned paper. I then selected a sentiment from another Stamping Bella set and stamped it on a piece of coordinating cardstock. I wrapped it around the patterned paper and used some tape to secure it. I added foam tape to the entire piece so that the windows would be popped up from the card base. Once that was secure, I put some dimensionals on the backs of the chicks and arranged them in the the windows allowing some parts to hang out just a bit for some added interest. To finish off the card, I grabbed some tiny enamel dots and added some into each window. I also used a bit of glossy accents on the chicks' beaks and some stickles to their party hats. Here's a close up of some of the details:
